A couple of my favorites off the top of my head:
'78 has a bit of a bad reputation (and given some of the summer and fall material perhaps deservedly so) but the spring tour is HOT and definitely worth your time. (1/22, 2/3, 2/5, 4/12, 4/16, 4/24 and 5/11 come to mind)
Highlights for this one are TMNS, Scarlet->Fire, Estimated, Black Peter, Around and Around and U.S. Blues (in Uncle Sam's home town)
Sound for this one leaves something to be desired. The soundboard is decent but it has lots of patches from a so-so aud. Still definitely worth the time
Highlights:FOTD, Althea, Lost Sailor->Saint, Scarlet->Fire (this one gets over looked a lot but its one of the best)
Estimated, and Space->Spanish Jam->Truckin'->Morning Dew.

Man I love 78'! My favorite scarlet>fire (2-05)and favorite wharf rat (4/24) are both from 78"...there are plenty of great shows from that year! I agree with and all of the Aril shows you have listed and of course 2/05...also check out a late summer show 09/02/78 Meadowlands for a killer scarlet fire!

I'll have to give a listen to the two shows you have mentioned...don't think I've heard either....
